Week 2 (Jan. 8 – 14)

52 Weeks :: Week 2, Day 1

52 Weeks :: Week 2, Day 1

2.1: Morning Bath
The girls took an unplanned bath this morning because Chelsea needed a good cleaning. She was a mess when Lucia got her from her crib… she had gotten sick in the night plus had a massive blow-out of her diaper. We think the antibiotic she is on for her ear infection bothered her tummy and caused the messes. After the bath, Chelsea (our “baby duck” in her bath towel) waited on her changing table to get dressed.

2.1: Puzzles
Chelsea has taken a real interest at putting together basic puzzles lately. Before she dumps the puzzle pieces out, she’ll tell you, “WAH-sch!” to make sure you are watching her. Then when she finishes the puzzle, she proudly proclaims, “I deh-dit!”

Ack… color is off on this one. Couldn’t fix it no matter what I did in Photoshop.

52 Weeks :: Week 2

2.2: Practice
After Mallory’s first ice skating lesson last week, we realized she needed a little one-on-one time on the ice to help make her more comfortable there. During a free skate time, Jonathan took her around the rink three times so she could get used to the slick surface. We are doubting that the extra practice helped because the next day at her lesson, Mallory cried the entire time, the instructor had to carry her/hold her hand the whole time, she asked to go potty mid-way through then afterward didn’t want to return to the lesson.

52 Weeks :: Week 2

2.3: Still Life
We have several Fisher-Price Little People holiday sets. Each year when we pack them away, it’s a bit of a guessing game to make sure that none of the holiday Little People got mixed up with our regular Little People and/or that we have all of the pieces for each set. So, before completely packing them away this year, Lucia took pictures of each set that we’ll print to use as reference for the future. Plus it let her practice some *still life* shots with her new camera.

Yes, I’m a dork.

52 Weeks :: Week 2, Day 5

2.5: Gymbucks
The girls went to Gymboree today so Lucia could redeem her Gymbucks and get the girls some spring clothes. She also placed an online order (with free shipping) to get some things that the store didn’t have. And Gran had some Gymbucks too, so she picked up a couple of things for us too. Since Lucia buys-ahead the majority of the girls’ clothes the year before when it goes on sale at the end of the season, they should be all set for spring and summer. She’s challenging herself to go on a girls’ clothes shopping hiatus until the end of summer.

Shopping Hiatus Update: Yeah, the *no shopping* thing didn’t happen…

2.5: It is here!
Lucia received her Project Life by Becky Higgins box in the mail today. It’s an all-in-one kit that will hold all of our 52 Weeks in 2010 pictures and captions.

And yes, I’m still a dork for taking a picture with my box. But everybody is doing it, I swear!
